原标题:【精品推荐】猛犸象牙手镯赏析

猛犸也称长毛象,是地球自有生命以来,在陆地上生活繁衍过的大型史前哺乳动物。它体形庞大,威武凶猛,是一种仅次于恐龙的大型动物。它身长达5米、体高约3米,体重在10顿上下,门齿向上弯曲,牙长约1点5米,每根重约200磅。它体披棕色或黑色细密的长毛,皮很厚,具有极厚的脂肪层,厚度可达9厘米,具有极强的御寒能力。这种珍贵的古象2至5万年前曾生活在北半球的大草原上,因地球出现数次冰河期,气候可怕的剧变,一万年前猛犸象绝迹。

Mammoths, also known as woolly mammoths, are large prehistoric mammals that have lived on land since life began on earth. It was a large, powerful and ferocious animal, second only to the dinosaurs. It was 5 meters long, 3 meters tall, weighed about 10 tons, and its incisors were bent upward, about 1.5 meters long, and each weighed about 200 pounds. Its body covered with brown or black fine long hair, the skin is very thick, with extremely thick layer of fat, thickness up to 9 cm, with a strong resistance to the cold. The rare ancient elephant lived on the northern steppes between 20,000 and 50,000 years ago, when mammoths disappeared after several ice ages and terrible climatic changes.

经过人类不断的探找,在俄罗斯西伯利亚及美国阿拉斯加发现了永久冻土层中沉睡了近万年的猛犸象牙,由于寒冷,延缓了自然腐蚀的过程,长期埋藏在地底下,深受土地与大自然的培育,保存的相当完整,尤其埋藏在潮湿地带的猛犸象牙与非洲大象牙几乎没有什么区别,即使在显微镜下,也只有专家才能鉴别。

After human search to find, in Russia's Siberia and Alaska found deep in the permafrost mammoth ivory for nearly ten thousand years, because of the cold, slow down the process of natural corrosion, buried in the ground for a long time, by land and the cultivation of nature, save quite complete, especially buried in moist areas of mammoth ivory and African elephant ivory almost no difference, even under a microscope, is only an expert can identify.

长毛象象牙现存极其稀少,过往常见的现代象牙雕刻品主要以非洲象牙为主。由于长毛象是现已绝种的动物,因此其象牙比非洲象牙更为珍贵,它的色泽也比非洲象牙更洁白,是非常难能可贵的牙雕材料。

Mammoth tusks are extremely rare, and the most common modern ivory carvings of the past are predominantly African. Because mammoth is now extinct animal, so its ivory is more precious than African ivory, its color is whiter than African ivory, is very valuable ivory material.

据了解,长毛象是生活在距今1.5万年-5万年间的古长鼻动物,其身高最高可达4.5米,全身披着棕红色的长毛,所以被称为“长毛象”。这一象群主要生活在亚欧大陆以及北美大陆的北部,一万多年前由于气候的变化以及古人类的过度捕杀而灭绝莹丰翡长毛象的象牙最长可以达数米,牙质比非洲象牙细嫩洁白而且坚硬。处于高纬度地区的俄罗斯马加丹州以及雅库茨克地区,长年处在冰天雪地的冰冻环境,使得长毛象绝迹后长埋于寒带冻土层内,而象牙的分子结构非常缜密,因此,该地区出土的长毛象牙牙质最好。

It is known that the mammoth is an ancient long-nosed animal that lived between 15,000 and 50,000 years ago. Its height can reach up to 4.5 meters, and its body is covered with long brown hair, so it is called "mammoth".The herd, which mainly lives in the northern parts of Eurasia and North America, died out more than 10,000 years ago due to climate change and overhunting by ancient humans. In the high latitudes of magadan and yakutsk regions of Russia, the long-frozen environment of ice and snow makes mammoths buried in the frozen soil after extinction. The molecular structure of the tusks is very careful, so the tusks unearthed in this region are of the best quality.

象牙更是为人所熟悉的收藏品,从前几乎每个大户人家都喜欢珍藏象牙饰品。用象牙筷子可以测试食物是否有毒的传说更让象牙制品成为一种神奇的对象。从小小的象牙筷子到珍贵的象牙雕刻品,能够拥有一件象牙藏品是生活富庶的象征。由于好的象牙材质越来越稀少,一件长达1.5米的原只象牙其市价可逾百万,2002年在香港一条名为“龙行天下”长毛象牙雕更开出了800万元港元的天价,因此象牙藏品的收藏潜力十分巨大。

Ivory is a familiar collection, almost every large family in the past like to treasure ivory ornaments. The legend that ivory chopsticks can be used to test whether food is poisonous makes ivory products a magical object. From tiny ivory chopsticks to precious ivory carvings, having an ivory collection is a sign of affluence. As good ivory materials become increasingly scarce, the market value of a 1.5-meter-long piece of original ivory can exceed a million yuan, and in 2002 in Hong Kong, a long-haired ivory carving called "the world of the dragon" sold for a whopping hk $8 million, so the collection potential is huge.

此藏品为近日本公司征集到的一件猛犸象牙手镯,内径6厘米,外径7.7厘米,重45.8克,其材质坚实细密,色泽柔润,质地光滑,雕刻精美。象牙藏品的价值主要体现在年代、工艺、质地等方面。从历史文化考证的角度来说,年代越久的象牙价值越高。明清时期是我国象牙雕刻的鼎盛时期,其间的不少佳作都是值得收藏的珍品。质地细腻,硬度适中,光泽柔和,牙纹细洁的象牙是制作高级工艺品的上佳材料。

The collection is a mammoth ivory bracelet collected by a Japanese company. It measures 6cm inside and 7.7cm outside and weighs 458g. The value of ivory collection is mainly reflected in the aspects of age, craft and texture. From the perspective of historical and cultural research, the older the ivory is, the more valuable it is. The Ming and qing dynasties were the heyday of ivory carving in China, during which many masterpieces are worth collecting. The ivory with fine texture, moderate hardness, soft luster and fine tooth lines is the best material for making high grade handicrafts.

在材质、工艺的性价比上,象牙雕刻品都存在着很大的上升空间。再加上象牙资源的稀缺性,制品的珍贵性,存量的有限性,以及成品的不可再生等诸因素,都使得象牙藏品具有无限升值的潜力。

In the material, the cost performance of the craft, there is a large space for ivory carving to rise. Together with the scarcity of ivory resources, the rarity of the products, the limitation of the stock, and the non-regeneration of the finished products, all these factors make the ivory collection have the potential of unlimited appreciation.

猛犸象牙是距今1亿多年前的猛犸象的门牙,猛犸象现在早已灭绝,现在的猛犸牙主要出自俄罗斯西伯利亚冰原的冰层,它属于不可再生资源,具有很高的收藏价值。猛犸象牙出成品的几率很低,在现在已经发现的所有猛犸象牙中,可以用于珠宝制作的大概只有15%-20%,一个完整的猛犸象牙手镯是很难得的,具有比较高的收藏投资价值。
